Default spektrum 6100 question

Will the 6100 be fine for a minifuntana? Would that plane would be considered a parkflyer? 42" wingspan. I wasn't sure or not if I would need the full range reciever for that one or not seems like it is kinda between a full size and park flyer.

That is the sort of plane the 6100 is intended for.

You'll be fine.

Just make sure to double check and range test before flying.

Thanks, I thought it would be fine but it's better to ask a dumb question before the crash than after. LOL

I have four of these so-called park flyer receivers. I take care not to mount them alongside any bulky item like a battery or big speed controller that could potentially block out a signal. I have no range problems at all and have had an EasyStar logged at 800 ft altitude. See the attached log. At that height there is not a lot of pleasure in flying a relatively small model. Do you really want a Park Flyer, or any model other than a thermal soarer, further away than that? As long as I can mount these receivers as I have described, I will use them in just about any model. I have such confidence that I have removed a 6200 from my Funjet and replaced it with a 6100. There will be no second chances if a Funjet ever goes out of range, but that is the confidence that I have in the receiver. As an aside, the AR500 5 channel receiver costs the same as the 6100 in the uk, but it is sold as a full range receiver. If you have the choice available, why not give the AR500 a try.
